Week 22: Playing at La Playa on P-Day in Mexico

Que Tal!

Well this week went pretty fast and kinda slow at the same time. I guess thats how the mission is! Well today we went to the Beach!! It was so fun. We went swimming and surfing and played some soccer and football in the waves....nahhh just kidding we cant do any of that haha. 

This morning we woke up at 6 and left for the beach at 6:45. We had 6 elders there. We took 3 Taxis a we shoved as many people in each taxi. we had 6 in one taxi...the taxis are only meant to have 4 haha it was so uncomfortable but fun. 

Then we got the the beach and one of the elders is from paraguay and it was his first time going to the beach and he was so excited and trying to say stuff in english it was funny. The place where we went has like umbrellas and chairs already set up so we all go and put our stuff there and we all just changed our clothes right there next to the water with people walking by and stuff haha dont know if we are allowed to do that.... 

but then i decided i wanted to do a backflip because i havent done it in awhile. SO i go and do it and almost land on my head...nooo i actually landed it perfect. Still got it baby... then we played volleyball in the professional court that was on the beach it was so sweet! We played for like 2 hours. It was way fun.

But being there on the beach and playing some beach volleyball made me miss home! I had fun but i missed being with you guys going to the beach and just laying there on the sand doing nothing. Thats cool that you guys went to the beach too! Julie, Brandon, and michael you all are looking good! I miss you guys a ton. i really do.. Then after that we came back and i slept until now haha

This past tuesday we went to wisit this women who was baptized 2 years ago and her husband isnt a member. but we are working on him. But tuesday we went with a member and her husband wasnt there. So we just start talking all normal and stuff then all of the sudden she says..we are getting a divorce.. with tears in her eyes and she just starts bawling.. its all silent and i just couldn´t believed what happened. It was so hard for me to not cry because she was sitting there telling us the story, crying and looking into my comp and i´s eyes. It was so sad and i could see the pain in she was in.. 

I feel so bad the women here! They do so much and the guys treat them like crap. There are good husbands here but it just seems like we see the crap ones. While i was sitting there listening to her i was thinking..What makes a perfect marriage? Because i deffinately want a perfect marriage and a happy marriage! So that my question for all of you. What do you think makes a perfect marriage?

Sorry about the sad story. Besides that our week was pretty good. We seem to teach the same people and visit the same people over and over. SO we are trying to find new people. Our only ¨good¨investigator is Hermana Nora. the women with the son on the mission. She has CHANGED a ton! She has been to church 7 times and hasnt missed since conference. 

Our last cita we had with her she told us that she knows that these things are true but she doesnt want to get baptized yet because she has a lot of bad habits to change. She said if she is going to do this mormon thing she wants to do it 100 percent. She will get baptized maybe not on the date we have set for her but she will sometime soon!

Food....I dont know if any of you have prayed for me to eat more or something along those lines. But on Monday we had pizza, Tuesday for the comida we had pizza,, thursday til sunday we had normal mexican food here. But pizza 3 days straight is unheard of here haha it was so awesome. BUt those days my poop wasn´t normal, it hurt coming out! haha i think ¨normal¨ food that i ate in america my body isnt used to! 

Im loving the food here now and i love the hot food too. Jalepinos and other peppers are good. I want to try a Habenero pepper. Hopefully this week. I might die but its all good. 

Oh then another coool thing that happend this week was saturday night we left a cita at 9 and we were on the other side of our area then all of the sudden a convy came out of nowhere and we stopped him and said how much to (where we live) and he said free for you guys! Then on the way to our house the other people that were in there got out on the stops and then there wasnt anybody. SO the conveys they drive a certain route and dont go off from that. But the driver asked us where we lived and dropped us off right in front of our house!! That never happens! He told us that he always sees us walking in the street everyday haha it was funny.

So about mothers day...I GET TO SKYPE!! and I will be skyping you guys on Friday at 12 here so 11 in utah and 10 in california. Because mothers day here in on the 10th. SO you guys need to check out skype and figure everything out to make sure it works and could you dad go to moms house to skype with them? So katie can also skyp with all of us.
